Lost B**bs Hash #98

On every Monday, we meet at a random bar to begin a 3 mile trek (called a Hash) around a neighborhood.

Here's how it works:

15 minutes after arriving at the bar, visiting friends and meeting everyone, 2 people (the hares) set off to mark out a trail using chalk and flour (biodegradable). This trail is usually around 3 miles and takes about an hour to complete. After 10 minutes, the rest of the group (the hounds) gives chase, trying to follow the marks and catch up with the hares.

If this sounds familiar, it's because it is basically the Hares and Hounds game you played when you were 10, only ours is a decidedly more grown up version, involving drinking and adult silliness.

We have a beer/water stop halfway through the Hash, and we are always done by 9:30.

    I'm trying to get more people to join tonight, but they were a little intimidated when I told them I ended up running about 5 miles last time. About how far would you say the walking group travels? I'm trying to offer different options for them.

      Monday's are supposed to be about 3.069 miles for true trail. That goes for walking or running. There isn't often a split with two trails like last week. Usually what happens are the fast runners in front hit ybf's or check backs so they go a lot farther as they get lost more. But we're all on the same trail. Trail can be anywhere from 3-5 miles though, as it's up to the hares. Some people really walk the whole time! Get your friends to come. LBH is always walker friendly.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
